Question about Sharp Aquos LC-46D62U 46 in. LCD HDTV
Sharp aquos 46 about 15 months old runs well but after about an hour it will turn self off and about 30 seconds later comes back on again problem repeats intermittently but never stays off over 30 seconds green light stays on remote will do nothing during this time won't turn set off until picture comes back on
It might mean there is an intermittent connection or cold solder joint somewhere inside the set.
But I wouldn't just settle on that.
Here are some other things to check:
1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?
Here is what I suggest:
ONE: Give it a hard reset. Possibly the software codes in the power management are corrupted. Just unplug the tv line cord for 4 hours. That will reset everything internally to factory defaults.
TWO: Give it the old whacking test. Just bang on the cabinet in many places with your hand or fist. That will restart any cold solder joints or loose connections.
THREE: If the above procedure does not help, then you will have to call in an expert tv tech; OR just live with it and put in a line cord switch so that when it is OFF, it is really OFF.
